No evidence to back neglect allegations at New Horizons JOCELYN DOLL

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Responding to a public allegation of neglect at New Horizons senors care home, two divisions of Island Health inspected the site the day after the allegations were made and found no evidence of neglect. “(Island Health) sent in a licensing officer unannounced the day after these allegations came out on Facebook, did an inspection of the building and were unable to find any evidence of lack of appropriate care,” said Tim Orr, director of Residential Services at Island Health. “I also sent one of my clinical quality leads to do an inspection at New Horizons. She went up, she inspected the building, she talked with staff she talked with residents and resident’s families. She came away and reported back to me saying ‘you know the building looks clean, I didn’t hear concerns from families or residents.’ So I also have been unable to substantiate the accusations made in that Facebook post.” Orr said that though the inspection didn’t turn up any evidence, Licensing is continuing to investigate the allegations. “They have not determined yet if there was any violation, but they continue to work on that.” The allegations were made public by Jenna Hagel, a private care aid who had been looking after a client at New Horizons since May of 2016. Hagel claims she voiced her concerns to the nurses on duty and the site manager. Orr confirmed that he was sent documentation of a dialogue going back and forth between New Horizons and Hagel going back to last summer. Mid-January, Hagel

took to Facebook to speak out for residents who she believes have been “raped of their dignity.” She said she has seen briefs left unchanged, feces on the floor or on the bed spread and mouthcare not done. “I’ve seen the foot of the made bed soaked with urine,” she said in an email interview. “Elsewhere in the facility I saw people at the table sleeping with food down their face or on their shirt. I saw my client’s neighbour waiting with the call bell on to use the bathroom for over an hour.” Hagel posted her concerns, as well as photos of the alleged neglect, to her personal Facebook page as well as a public Campbell River Rant and Rave Facebook page with a large following. Ian West, vice president of operations at Park Place Seniors Living which operates New Horizons, said that not only is it against the law to take photos such as that without the resident’s written authorization, he is also unable to verify if the photos are of an actual resident at New Horizons. “The most referred to photo..was one showing a leg of a person that had drying fecal matter,” West said. “This ‘snapshot’ may lead a person to believe that this is evidence of neglect by staff. Another way of understanding it may be that residents are encouraged and supported to remain active and as independent as their condition allows. “In doing so, it is industry best practice to have residents go to the toilet themselves rather than label them incontinent and place adult diapers on them… In this process sometimes residents may return from a visit from the bathroom with fecal material

showing.” New Horizons, operated by Park Place Seniors Living, provides subsidized residential care for seniors. There are 86 subsidized beds and eight private-pay beds on site. According to the Community Care Quickfacts Directory published by the Office of the Seniors Advocate in January, New Horizons funded 3.15 hours of direct care per resident per day in 2015/16. The provincial targets for care hours are 3.36. Less than 10 per cent of care facilities in B.C. met or exceeded the target. “Even though we are not funded at 3.36, neglect and abuse does not take place at New Horizons,” said West. Hagel doesn’t think more care hours or staff will fix the problems she says she has seen. She believes that the standards of care set by the legislations are too low. “All that being said, I wish there was a way to get it across to people that it is not just shortage of staff or hours of care per day per resident, but how we care,” she said. “What has happened to the fundamentals? Meeting the basic needs that we all require? The physiological needs like air, food and water. Safety needs like health,well being and personal security.  The need for love and belonging, like intimacy (just a hand to hold is considered intimate) family and friendships. The need for self esteem, everyone has a need to feel respected, accepted and valued. And self actualization, living to a persons full potential.” MLA Claire Trevena pointed out that though Hagel’s allegations were troubling, it is important to remember that they are only allegations at this point. However, it brings into question the residential care system. “We have this very

fixed, financiallyimposed care model that doesn’t work for all residents,” she said. “Some residents obviously need more stimulation and a lot more care while other residents are much more able to be more self-sufficient, and the fact that we’re limiting the number of hours that any care worker can give a senior comes back to the systemic issue of an underfunded system. It’s hugely problematic.” She said there needs to be a serious investment in enabling seniors to stay at home as long as possible as well as changing the amount of care hours received to be budgeted based on need instead of prescribed based on budget. “It must be extraordinarily stressful on the care providers and workers in care homes and on those people who run the care homes,” she said. “This model doesn’t work for anyone.” Residential care facilities in B.C. operate under either the Hospital Act or the Community Care and Assisted Living Act. The Community Care and Assisted Living Act, which New Horizons operates under, lays out guidelines for the facility itself such as how wide a hallway has to be (1.83 metres) to the maximum temperature the hot water in the building is heated to (49 degrees Celsius).

It also requires that people with a license under the act provide “comfortably furnished lounge facilities that have, in total, at least two square metres of floor space for each person in the facility” as well as 1.5 square metres of outdoor activity space per resident. As well as the physical facilities, the act outlines how residents should be cared for. It requires that licensees assist persons in care to maintain daily oral health. They are also required to provide residents, other than those in hospice care, with ongoing physical, social and recreational activities best suited to the needs of the person in care. In the act, neglect is defined as “the failure of a care provider to meet the needs of a person

in care, including food, shelter, care or supervision.” “I believe the staff at New Horizons, as with all long term care sites, are very committed to quality care and work very hard to provide that care,” Orr said. West said that the unfounded allegations have directly impacted staff at New Horizons. “They feel their integrity and their dedica-

tion to the residents has been abused and basically maligned,” he said. “Unfortunately, a lot of people at the bedside get hurt by these accusations, they are very proud where they work, they are very proud of the care they give, for someone to have the ability to just post something on to social media where there is no accountability and no fact checking, hurts those individuals.”

Campbell River will not participate in a special edition of Communities in Bloom this year. At its Monday meeting, council made the decision to decline an invitation from the beautification program, citing too many prior commitments. Ross Milnthorp, the city’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture, said city staff do not have the time nor the resources to take part in Communities in Bloom (CIB). “The city has a number of large projects/events scheduled for 2017 and staff are fully engaged in executing the 2017 work plan and do not have the capacity to undertake the work necessary to participate in the CIB program,” Milnthorp said. The city’s Community Services, Recreation and Culture Commission, which is made up of members from the public, agreed that taking on Communities in Bloom this year would likely not be possible. “The commission discussed the capacity of the community volunteer base and the level of volunteer effort needed to host these events,” wrote Coun. Colleen Evans, chair of the commission, in a report to council. “The commission concluded that adding the Communities in Bloom event to the already extensive schedule of events in 2017 may not be feasible.” Coun. Charlie Cornfield said he agreed with

that assessment. “It’s not something we can take on by ourselves,” Cornfield said. “I think given the timeframe that’s left for 2017, it’s an unrealistic goal but at least we took it back to the people and said ‘what do you think?’ So I’m going to support the motion that we don’t participate this year.” In 2017 the city is hosting a number of large events, including the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities Conference in April which is expected to attract 250 participants, as well as the Vancouver Island Sustainable Technology Expo in June (150 participants), the Elders Gathering in July (3,0005,000 p ar t icip ants) and Tribal Journeys in August (5,000-7,000 participants). Milnthorp said those events, on top of the city’s annual events, will already require a “significant amount of volunteer and staff time.” “Staff believe that recruiting volunteers to organize and coordinate the community around the CIB program will be very difficult,” Milnthorp said. The city was invited to participate in a special, one-time Communities in Bloom category that celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday this year. Campbell River earned the right to participate as a past national Communities in Bloom winner. The city took the national title in 2011 but withdrew from the competition in 2013 due to budget constraints.

Increase in funding for school district thanks to unexpected increase in enrolment MIKE DAVIES CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The Campbell River School District (SD72) approved its final budget for the current school year at this week’s public meeting, and there’s some good news: the district has seen a sudden and unexpected spike in enrolment, meaning more money from the provincial government is coming its way. The board prepares a preliminary budget each May which estimates the costs, revenues and staffing needs that are expected for the upcoming school year. “Typically, we are fairly close to where the actuals come in,” SecretaryTreasurer Kevin Patrick said in his report to the board this week in presenting the revised budget, “but we do have to

make some adjustments for what we’re actually seeing in the classrooms.” As actual costs become known as the year goes on – some hiring decisions are made later in the year, for example – they compile the information into their final budget submission, due by the end of February. “So what do we know for this year? Well, the big impact – the big change – this year is that we actually had more students than we projected,” Patrick told the board. “We ended up with 112 students more than we projected, and in my time here, that’s never happened.” An additional 112 students, Patrick said, is “significant,” mainly because it means an additional $1-million or so in revenue from the provincial government.

But that money, obviously, has to go towards the student needs across the district. After all, having more students enrolled, while garnering the district more money from the government, also means higher expenses. But when combined with the additional $255,596 in administrative savings that the government returned to the district this year and some other expenditure savings – such as the closure of Oyster River and Discovery Passage Elementary schools  – even after the additional expense that comes along with extra students, the district went from having a projected operating budget deficit of $881,524 to having an operating surplus of $653,707 for the current year.

After all was said and done, the board passed a final fiscal budget of $64,864,184 and will now immediately turn its attention to preparing the preliminary budget for 2017-18, which will involve “extensive consultation” with various stakeholders and partner groups, Patrick says. Specific dates the public should be aware of during the consultation period are April 11, when the board will sit down with the district Parent Advisory Council, April 18, which is the deadline for public submissions regarding next year’s operating budget to be heard at the April 25 public board meeting. T he b o ard c ou l d potentially pass the preliminary budget at their May 16 public meeting.

Next year’s proposed school calendar features a full two-week spring break, winter break that starts later in December and a four-day weekend at Remembrance Day. The calendar, in its current form, has classes beginning Sept. 5 after three days of noninstructional professional development days for teachers and staff the week prior. “This came out of discussions with the calendar committee, which includes stakeholder partner representatives including high school students, trustee representation and a lot of good and thoughtful discussion around what a calendar could and should look like,” Superintendent Tom Longridge told the board

this week’s public meeting, where the proposed calendar was approved. “At the end of the day, it’s similar to ones we’ve had before, but there are things of note.” One of those things is when winter break is slated to begin. Because of the way the dates fall, the two weeks surrounding Christmas where kids would be out of school were a bit more complicated to figure out than some years. “There was a lot of discussion around where the Christmas break should start, whether it should be mid-December or the last week of December, closer to Christmas,” Longridge says. There was concern from the secondary schools that coming back to class later in January would leave less time to prepare for final exams, Longridge says, “but

there are only two exams now, where there used to be six.” Elementary and middle school Christmas concerts and other winter celebrations became factors in that discussion, as well, because those festivities “become a challenge (to schedule) if there are fewer school days in December,” Longridge says. So winter break is currently slated to begin Dec. 23 and see students return to class Jan. 8. To compensate for the longer fall stretch, Longridge says, “we have proposed an extra long weekend in November so it kind of breaks up that 3.5 months a little bit,” and there is still some discussion about whether they will cut the three Pro-D days that are set for before school starts down to two and having the last one later

in the first half of the year to break it up even more. Trustee John Kerr says he likes the schedule as it is proposed, because with spring break falling all the way at the end of March and running through the first week of April, “it would be a long grind” if the Christmas break started a week earlier and classes were back in session right at the start of January. The schedule will be available for download and open to public comment on or before Feb. 28 at sd72.bc.ca/calendar, then finalized throughout March before being sent to the Ministry of Education.

Fraser Institute’s latest Report Card on Schools is out MIKE DAVIES

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Public schools in the Campbell River School District (SD72) have scored extremely low on the most recent Fraser Institute Report Card of British Columbia’s Elementary Schools. Superintendent of Schools Tom Longridge,

however, says people shouldn’t read too much into the numbers. The highest-ranking public elementary school in SD72 was L’École Willow Point Elementary, which came in at No. 478 out of the 956 schools ranked. The next highest SD72 school on the list was Sandowne, which was

ranked all the way down at 721. The ratings of schools by the Fraser Institute in its report card use the results of the Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) test given to Grade 4 and Grade 7 students annually to generate its rankings. And therein lies the main problem, Lon-

gridge says. While the Fraser Institute bases its scoring on 10 different indicators to give them statistical relevance, all of those indicators are founded on the results of one test, which Longridge says makes it less reliable in terms of applicable data. “They have to break out mechanisms to

make it look like there are multiple elements to their system, but it’s really all predicated on the FSA itself and everything surrounding that,” Longridge says. “They make it look like they’re taking 10 elements into account, but it’s all one.” And the FSA itself has been fraught with controversy over the years. The BC Teachers’ Federation, for example, has a long history of disagreeing with the very premise of the Fraser Institute’s report card and the FSA, going so far as calling the annual report card an “attack on public schools,” and sending out letters encouraging parents to exempt their children from taking the test say-

ing, “we should never allow a single test to be allowed to pit school communities against each other, but that is exactly what happens every year and it’s time we worked together to end this misleading practice.” Campbell River and District Teachers’ Association President Dave Harper responded to the Mirror’s questions about the ranking by saying he “won’t waste time commenting” on the report card, simply calling it “garbage.” While Longridge is a bit more diplomatic in his response to the report, he also admits, “the mechanism that they use to attribute scores is problematic. That’s why there’s so much resistance among public school teachers in the province, and that’s why there’s a lot of resistance to the FSA instrument itself. It calls the results of the FSA into question, just because of the political nature of the Fraser Institute’s rankings.” Longridge also says SD72 is “at somewhat of a disadvantage” in scoring based on the way the Fraser Institute makes its calculations. “We have middle schools, and seven of the elements of the Fraser Institute’s 10 rankings are connected to both Grade 4 and Grade 7, but our Grade 7s are in a different school, so while I know it can be argued that it’s the same kids, it’s not necessarily, when you look at how its put together.” There are other factors that Longridge says call the report card into question, as well. “It also penalizes schools that have fewer students participating in the testing and advantages private

schools and those that are in areas of higher socio-economic status.” The Fraser Institute itself cautions against using its report card to make a decision about what school a child should attend, saying that although its report card “provides a valuable tool for making a decision,” in that regard, it also adds, “the choice of school should not be made solely on the basis of a single source of information,” and, “a sound academic program should be complimented by effective programs in areas of school activity not measured by the report card.” That is an assessment with which Longridge can agree. “It’s really difficult to pick out anything in the Fraser Institute rankings that is helpful to schools,” he says. “It might be perceived to be helpful to parents, because it distills some very complex elements into a single dimension they can rank, but I think it’s very much a misrepresentation of what goes into a school.” Longridge says that’s one of the main obstacles in trying to gauge any school’s success, and it makes data collection and summary very difficult. “How do you count things that matter rather than counting things that you can count? That’s the dilemma we’re in,” Longridge says. “I’m very proud of the work that teachers in this school community do and how dedicated they are to their profession, to the students and to student outcomes. “So yes, it’s a concern when you see that not being valued by something that just has a quantitative figure that isn’t what’s representative of what’s happening in that school.”

Heart disease runs in Karen Hawkins’ family. Just like her mother, Hawkins had open heart surgery for a bypass as well as an aortic valve replacement at 68-yearsold. Her brother had one at 65. Her grandfather, had heart problems his whole life Now, at 77-years-old, Hawkins’ is keeping a close eye on her mitral valve. “I’ve always done all my own housework and gardening, and now I go to lift a rock and darn it all,” she said with a laugh. “I can’t do stuff like that anymore.” Februar y is Heart Health Month, a time to raise awareness about heart disease from prevention strategies to encouraging heart check ups and recognizing symptoms of a heart

attack. Hawkins heart problems are genetic and she said she doesn’t remember any recommendations from doctors about staying active or eating healthy, but there are lifestyle factors and health conditions that

could increase the risk for heart disease. According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation website, lifestyle risk factors include an unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity, and unhealthy weight, smoking, stress and excessive

alcohol and drug abuse. Health conditions that are risk factors are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and atrial fibrillation (irregular heart beat). To reduce the risk of heart disease, the foundation gives tips on how to manage risk factors that you have control over, like diet and level of physical activity. As well as looking after yourself, heart health month is a chance to learn the signs of a heart attack in yourself as well as someone else. The Heart and Stroke Foundation website says that signs can vary from person to person and may be different for men and women but chest discomfort, sweating, upper body discomfort, nausea, shortness of breath and light-headedness are all signs that someone is having a heart attack.

Council endorses new plan for downtown revitalization KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

C it y c ou n c i l h a s endorsed a detailed design plan for an overhaul of the city’s downtown core. At its Monday meeting, council signed off on using Refresh Downtown – a document aimed at promoting downtown as a place to live and do business – as council policy going forward.

The document was informed by the public through several open houses held last year, as well as an online survey. According to findings compiled by city staff, a pedestrian-priority downtown concept was supported during the community engagement events as well as “a more multi-modal and pedestrian design.” To that end, Refresh Downtown suggests

extending the existing waterfront walkway into downtown, with connections from Highway 19A to Shoppers Row. The document also recommends the installation of roundabouts. “The traditional intersection, from a safety point of view, there’s more conflict points. A roundabout has fewer conflict points, which is why it’s supported by ICBC,” said Marianne

Just ! d e v i r r A

Wade, acting community planning and development services manager for the city. According to the Refresh Downtown document, collision rates have been shown to drop by 40 per cent, while personal injuries and fatalities plummet by as much as 90 per cent when compared to standard intersections. Refresh Downtown suggests roundabouts for three areas: the intersection at Highway 19A and the entrance to the pier, at Highway 19A and Roberts Reach and

at Highway 19A and St. Ann’s Road. Wade, though, said the community had a problem with adding a roundabout at St. Ann’s and Highway 19A. “When we went out to the community, the roundabout at St. Ann’s and Shoppers was the one that people were more... uncomfortable with the concept,” Wade said. Staff ’s intention with the proposed location was to help ease traffic back-up along Pier Street through to Shoppers

Row. But, she said staff recognized the public’s concern and have put forward options to modify the traffic signal controls to be more pedestrianfriendly. Council took that feedback to heart on Monday and made the decision to remove the roundabout at St. Ann’s and Highway 19A from the conceptual plan, but keep the text for future reference. Coun. Charlie Cornfield suggested trying the roundabouts in other

areas first. “I don’t think this is a good area to put an experimental roundabout,” Cornfield said. “I think leaving it as a future potential option is great. Let’s try it somewhere else first and see how it works.” Mayor Andy Adams agreed. “While there was consensus that a roundabout would be a good fit at all the public open houses I attended, this location was not a good fit,” Adams said. “There are places that it works and there are places that it doesn’t.” Refresh Downtown also suggests, with the exceptions of Dogwood and Highway 19A, that there is “broad public support for reducing speed limits within downtown from 50 km/h to 30 km/h, particularly on Shoppers Row.” The Refresh Document also focuses on integrating underground and above-ground infrastructure requirements into downtown designs, while considering the effects of sea level rise. The Refresh Downtown document is not a bylaw and is non-statutory. Council’s endorsement of the plan means the document becomes council policy and city staff will refer to Refresh Downtown when considering any actions, projects or dealing with development applications within the downtown core.

Lessons learned when teaching your child to drive

If you’re brave enough to teach your child to drive, understand one important thing. What you say, or what you think you say, is not what they hear. For instance, on the first time heading out of our driveway, I was beaming with pride. My little girl had got her ‘L’ and there she was behind the wheel. Of my car. Behind the wheel. The STEERING wheel! One other thing to remember; on most models of cars the doors automatically lock once the car is in motion. Plan your escape early. As we approached the end of the driveway I believe I said, quietly and calmly, “Just stop, look both ways and when it’s clear, enter traffic.” Apparently, what my daughter heard was, “GO! NO! STOP! WAIT! OKAY, GUN IT!” You can tell when you’re saying what you think and she’s hearing what you said. Just look at her. She’ll be sitting there with her foot pressed firmly to the brake. Both hands will be gripping the steering wheel, knuckles whitening. The beautiful smile you had always loved will look like she

The centrepiece of the provincial budget announced Tuesday is a tax cut. But not any tax cut. This is a cut to Medical Services Plan premiums, slicing them in half for most people, starting next year. Heading into an election in just a few months, the B.C. Liberals obviously want to take credit for slashing the unpopular fee levied to pay for a portion of our province’s health care costs. There’s just one problem with that – they’re slicing away increases they put into place. In fact, it was just a year ago that most middleclass folks saw a 14 per cent increase in MSP premiums in the last budget! And there was a four We say: Liberals’ per cent hike in 2015, MSP cut not as a four per cent hike in 2013, a four per cent impressive as it increase in 2012, an appears on the increase in 2010… surface Premier Christy Clark and Finance Minister Michael de Jong aren’t rolling back just any tax, they’re rolling back a tax that is specifically a Liberal construct, one they have increased time and again. The MSP is one of the most regressive taxes in the province. You begin paying it if you earn more than $24,000 a year, which is barely more than a full-time minimum wage job. Millionaires barely pay more than folks scraping by – and the impact of a four per cent hike on an average worker is obviously much larger. Cutting the MSP will be welcome, but the fact that the Liberals are able to cut it just emphasizes how well things are going in B.C. Right now, the economy is booming, government coffers are full – and the Liberals can afford to cut back the tax that penalizes the poor and middle class the most. Of course, if they really wanted to help, they’d simply fold it into income tax – a more progressive option than a fee on minimum wage workers. -Black Press

a parking spot. “Why do you do that?” she asked. “Do what?” I asked, innocently. “Every time I turn into the driveway or a parking lot your body goes stiff and straightens, like you’re being electrocuted,” she said. “I do not,” I said. “And you grab onto the door handle with one hand and the dash board with the other.” “I do not,” I said. She looked down to my hands, which were still clamped in a death grip to the door handle and dash board. She offered a wane smile. Eventually, to alleviate all the stress, we enrolled her in a driving school. I waited out the hour while she was on her lesson. Then the car pulled in and my daughter and the instructor got out. I listened politely as the instructor gave a glowing, passing grade. I was proud, yet inquisitive. I stepped closer so only he could hear, “Did, she, um, use any questionable language?” The instructor smiled. “No,” he said. “She was very polite and very easy to teach. Although I have had that question before.”

A letter to the editor in the Feb. 22 Campbell River Mirror entitled “Dissatisfied with wait time” contained incorrect information. In the letter the author believes the City of Campbell River fire dispatch centre answers 9-1-1 calls for ambulance. This is incorrect, within the North Island 9-1-1 coverage area, when a person calls 9-1-1 for a medical emergency, it is transferred from EComm to BC Ambulance directly.

Feltcher reverting to regular drivel

Just when I thought Mr. Fletcher was evolving to write regular balanced columns, he reverted to his usual banal, unimaginative anti-public school teacher, anti-union, antisocialism (read: antipublic education and healthcare for his definition) drivel. Naturally, our public school teachers want dollars the BC Liberals absconded with to give to private schools returned to where the dollars belong: our public school students. Private schools shouldn’t be

funded above the public per student amount. Any dollars above this are, fairly, the parents’ responsibility. Mr. Fletcher’s belief (assuming he believes what he writes) that the “exodus of parents who don’t want their kids run through a far-left indoctrination programme” is the reason for a shift to private schools is repulsively presumptuous and, for me, will be saved for the next time I need a good emetic. It is far more likely that the shift (for those who can afford it) is due to reduced quality of education in our public schools resulting from BC Liberal underfunding. No doubt, however, that the BC Liberals will be telling us we have some of the best marks in the world on standardized tests. Naturally, when teaching is targeted to learning-specific tests rather than targeted to

open, rational, logical, thinking, test results well be high. The crux of matters is not “Socialist Philosophies,” it is the BC Liberals’ massive vacuum where respect for our Canadian Constitution and Charter of Rights and Freedoms should be. This void was obviously revealed by the vulgar waste of taxpayers’ dollars for three appeals, u lt i m ately, to ou r Supreme Court of Canada where they “lost.” In actuality “We” all lost dollars that should have gone to public education. Any freshman law student could tell you that B.C. teachers’ rights to a fair, collective bargaining process under our constitution were violated. This is a “no-brainer.” So, Premier Clark’s behavior comes as no surprise as her mentor was Gordon Campbell. Just in case memories are short, Gordo sat down

pre-election with the HEU (mostly women) and promised he would “honour” their new contract with their first raise in seven or more years. His first action as BC premier was to tear up their new contract and impose one that cut back wages by 15 per cent. It took my wife nine years to get back to year 2000 wages. There’s your BC Liberal “honour.” This case was also appealed three times in spite of the obvious violation of the Charter Rights. These flagrantly wasted dollars should have gone where they belonged – to our public Healthcare. So I suppose Mr. Fletcher, that in support of your “anti-Socialism” soap box, you are prepared to give up your Charter Rights to “journalistic freedom of speech” and your “Socialist” medical plan.

Donor: ‘You never know who you’re going to save’ life every few months so it’s not a big deal and they say you potentially save three lives every time you donate. It seems like such an easy thing to do.” Kyle first attended a blood donor clinic when she was in university and she’s kept at it ever since. On Jan. 4, when the blood donor clinic was last in Campbell River, Kyle gave her 100th donation. She received a commemorative pin to mark the milestone and was invited to attend a thank-you function sometime next year. “Some day a family member or close friend may need a blood donation but if not, there’s a ton of people out there who could use it,” Kyle says. “I would encourage people to go donate. You never know who you’re saving.”

lood. It’s in you to give. It’s a motto that Canadian Blood Services has been championing for years. It’s also one that Campbell River resident Lea Kyle wholeheartedly believes in. “Their slogan – it’s in you to give – it’s just so obvious,” says Kyle who has been donating blood for more than 30 years and recently gave her 100th blood donation. For Kyle, attending the blood donor clinics when they come to Campbell River is so important that she schedules her life around the days the clinics come to town. To Kyle, donating blood is a natural. “You go and you realize it’s so simple,” Kyle says. “It’s an hour out of your

That’s a message that Layne Marshall, who volunteers at the Campbell River donor clinics, has been trying to spread as donations have been on the decline locally. “Basically what’s happening since 2008 is the annual success rate started in the high 90 per cent but over the next eight years it’s slowly dropped to the low 90s,” Marshall says. “In the last little bit it’s dropped to the high 80 range.” At the last blood donor clinic, which ran from Jan. 3-5 at the Community Centre, 253 units of blood were collected which fell short of the 287 unit target (88 per cent). A total of 297 people attended the clinic, a slight decrease from the 327 donors who attended the previous clinic Nov. 8-10 of last year. Marshall, who has

was a regular donor. At that time, he was living in the United States and donating blood made you $25 a pint. “I’ve been doing it for a long time and it’s been a part of me,” says Marshall, which is why he made the decision to not only attend the Campbell River clinics but volunteer and help recruit other donors, particularly after what he witnessed at a recent clinic.

the person, with some people taking only four or five minutes, while others are there “substantially longer” he says, up to perhaps 15 minutes. Then, donors are treated to complimentary cookies and juice. It’s a voluntary measure that Marshall feels passionately about. “When you hear about people who have been in automobile accidents and they go to the hospital – they need blood. When you hear or read about or see children in hospitals getting cancer treatments or surgery, they need blood,” Marshall says. He knows how important blood donors are. A good friend has had several surgeries in recent years, all requiring blood transfusions. “I have seen the benefits,” he says. And as Kyle says, you never know who you may be saving.

“There was a stretch of time on a Wednesday afternoon when all the volunteers were sitting around, twiddling their thumbs, the intake area was empty and all the beds were empty,” he says. “I thought, ‘this is stupid, we have enough people in this town, we should be able to fill these beds non-stop.’” Since then, when the clinics are in town, sandwich boards are put up downtown and in Mariner’s Square to draw attention to the clinic’s presence and a banner is put up at the Community Centre where all the clinics are held. The clinics come to Campbell River every 56 days. The next one happens to be this week, and runs from Feb. 28-March 2. The clinic returns April 25-27. Marshall says the process of donating blood is relatively simple. Donors can pre-register online or when they leave a previous clinic. Once you are signed in, donors are screened to ensure their blood is healthy. The process of actually giving blood depends on

followed him in. Within seconds we were five feet in the air on an eight inch wide log. Ten feet later Paul disappeared from sight as the log ended with a six foot drop. When I landed it, Paul was already launching a step up jump onto a ladder ramp followed by a bigger drop. We were riding tire to tire and it all went beautifully. When Paul pulled to the side to see how I was doing, I rode past him. Once your mojo comes back, you don’t risk losing it with unnecessary stops. The trail never let up and I was hitting things blind. It was probably one of the best rides I’d ever had and when we popped out on the skider road to get Logan, he was surprised to see me in the lead. I was riding way over my head that day, but it was working so I didn’t second guess it. More skinnies, bigger drops and to top it all off, I hit a road gap bigger than anything I’d ever done . . . and it felt natural. This was a ride to remember and I’d like to believe I remember it because of the trail, the stunts, or the friends, but in reality it was the last 50 feet of trail that has kept this one in my head all these years. As we were getting to the bottom of the trail and chatting about which was the preferred pub, I rode slightly off trail to bunny hop over a log. The diameter of the log was about 12 inches at best. Something I had done thousands of times. On this day, where I was apparently invincible, it should have been like riding over a painted line on the road, but for some reason I slipped off my pedal and bounced into the dirt. As I stood up laughing, I felt blood running into my shoe. The looks on the guy’s faces were telling to say the least. Wide eyes, gaping mouths and one guy gagging.

I looked down to see a 4 inch gash in my shin and what looked like exposed bone. Those areas of the body with no meat sure bleed a lot. (aluminum vs: flesh. Pedals - 1, Shin - 0) It was almost like the that little voice in my head just had to have the last word. We were only a few minutes from the finish of the ride and my van. The pain was at a minimum due to the numbness and we managed to get the bleeding stopped before anyone else started gagging. I covered it in gauze, secured it with duct tape and headed to the pub with the boys. After a ride like that you can’t let a little blood stop you from celebrating. Stitches could get sorted later; first we needed to re-hydrate and relive the highlights. The little voice can’t take that away.

Tyees take Towhees in Timberline tourney final

Last weekend Timberline Secondary School hosted a six-Team Invitational Tournament for Junior Girls Basketball Teams from the Island. The Carihi Tyees started off the tournament playing the host school Timberline and it was a hard fought game by both teams. Carihi came out on top thanks to great shooting by all players.   They were led by Nyla Haider who had 16 points and Jolyn Barley who had 15.   In the next game, Carihi faced the Duncan Christian Chargers and thanks to great team-defence, came out on top. Tory Stewart was the high scorer with 14 points. Next, the Tyees faced Vanier who was a very aggressive team with a great press. The Tyees came out very composed and were able to break the press and come up with timely layups to get out to a lead in the first quarter.  Great team defence limited the Vanier charge and Carihi won 30-14.  Timely shooting from Holly Crosby helped push the Tyees to victory.   The Tyees then faced École Au Coeur De L’île from Comox. They again showed great team defence led by Sandrine Daniels and Rowen

The Carihi Junior Girls Tyees had a successful weekend at crosstown rival Timberline’s tournament.

Flood and won 34-13. This setup a final game against the Vanier Towhees again. This was a hard fought game by both teams.  Carihi was able to get a lead in the first quarter and pushed the lead to 13 at half. Carihi went on to win 37-25. Carihi was led by point guard Haley Wingert who controlled the pace of the game and was a great leader on the court. The team appreciated MaKayla Dobson who cheered from the bench all tournament nursing a sprained ankle.

This season has been one of the best in memory for the VIJHL with four true contenders for the league championship. Every coach will tell you that there have been no off nights without consequences.

The Nanaimo Buccaneers, Victoria Cougars, Saanich Braves and Campbell River Storm, who have spent the majority of the campaign in first, are the favoured teams. Don’t count out the Kerry Park Islanders and the Comox Valley Glacier Kings. The Isles have been coming on and the G-Kings could surprise if a healthy Marcus Gloss returns between the pipes.

Despite medaling in the 2016 Cyclone Taylor Cup, last season was disappointing for the Campbell River Storm. Their goal was to repeat as Western Canadian champions and they fell short.

CR Cermaq teams advance in cup play www.CampbellRiverMirror.com

T

his past weekend, the Div. 1 and Div. 3 Campbell River Cermaq men’s soccer teams were involved in cup play. On Saturday, the Div. 1 squad was at a home for a game against Vantreights in the Jackson Cup while the Div. 3 squad travelled to Victoria to play Prospect Lake in the George Pearkes Challenge Cup. Should the Div. 3 team defeat Prospect Lake, the cup schedule called for them to play Cowichan away on the following day. The CR Cermaq Div. 3 team rose to the occasion defeating Prospect Lake 4-3 in Saturday’s game and followed that

up with a 1-0 win over Cowichan on Sunday. Against Prospect Lake, the game was tied 2-2 after 90 minutes and it required extra time to decide a winner. This was a tightly contested game in which every player made telling contributions. Ultimately, it was the quality of finishing by James Kenny and Edgar Cramner that proved decisive. The following day in Cowichan, it was another fine finish by James Kenny that proved the difference as CR Cermaq held on for their second hard earned victory of the weekend. Meanwhile on Sat-

urday, the CR Cermaq Div. 1 team got off to a quick start against a Vantreights team that had suffered only one defeat all season in league play. In the second minute, an Eric Roberts’ cross was hammered home by Blaze Roberts who would then score his second of the day just before half time following a Rob Shaw corner. Vantreights were competitive throughout the game and forced CR Cermaq to work hard, denying the home team the time or space to establish any free flowing play. Indeed it took a fine save from Wylie Roberts mid-way

through the second half to preserve the 2-0 scoreline. In the next round of cup play on March 4, both Campbell River teams are favoured with home ties, the CR Cermaq Div. 1 team will play Gorge and CR Cermaq Div. 3 team will play the undefeated Mid-Isle Mariners. Next weekend, it is back to league action with the Div. 1 team in Victoria to play Lakehill on Saturday while the Div. 3 team has another double-header, Hellas FC on Saturday and Port Alberni Athletics on Sunday, both games scheduled for the Robron Turf Field.

CAMPBELL RIVER Fish & Wildlife Association “Defending all outdoors and your right to enjoy it”

YOU! 3x14 THANK CR Fish & wildlife to the people and businesses of Campbell River for their outstanding support in making our 2017 Annual Awards and Wild Game Banquet a resounding success. This year we had a sold out event and thanks to the very generous donations from the community and the people at the banquet, we had a very successful year. Especially with the lack of funding for Environmental projects from Gaming, the funds raised at the banquet are very important towards supporting our numerous Fish and Wildlife projects which directly benefit the community.

Canadian Blood Services provides a safe, secure, cost-effective, affordable and accessible supply of quality blood, blood products and their alternatives. Canada is selfsufficient in blood and we are working to be self-reliant in plasma. Emerging risks and best practices are monitored continuously. Our blood and blood products are safe and of quality. We help hospitals improve blood utilization and surveillance. Donors actively support us and our donor base is strong and our volunteers continue to play a critical and meaningful role. When you give blood, you give life. Life for surgical patients, hemophiliacs, accident victims and cancer patients. It may even mean life for you or a family member someday. It’s so easy to do and takes only a few minutes, yet it means so much. What’s Your Blood Type? Everyone has two genes that determine their blood type, it’s passed on from parents to children, just like eye colour. While each parent has two genes, they contribute only one apiece. This process of combination can sometimes lead to children having different blood types than their parents. This chart shows your possible blood type based on the type of your parents. O negative (O-) is the universal donor type, which means it can be transfused to anyone in need. That’s why it’s always in high demand — it’s used in emergency situations when there is no time to test a patient’s blood type. People with AB+ blood are known as universal recipients, meaning they can receive blood from anyone.

Counsellors make rounds for next year’s courses BRADEN MAJIC CARIHI MIRROR

Course discussion time has arrived for students of Carihi and with the latest course guide out, counsellors are ready to assist and help prepare for next year. “This is one of our busier times of the year,” said John Bowers, Carihi counsellor. Over the next couple weeks, much of the counsellors’ time will be spent outside of their offices. They will be going to classes, making up sheets for course selection, and answering plenty of questions. Bowers and counselling partner Maralyn Lloyd made a visit to École Phoenix Middle School to talk to the soon-to-be Grade 9’s. High school expectations, courses and helpful transition tips were

all discussed with the students. “We give them a bunch of information to think about, ask questions and take the information home [to parents],” said Bowers. In the 2017/18 course guide, there are some new things inside. “Your school personnel will often determine which electives you can offer,” said Bowers. There is a new program for Grade 9 French Immersion students called ‘The Tyee Program’. This program offers the chance to learn and be active by having math, science, a P.E. class and an outdoor ed class all in one semester. Carihi is also offering a new elective: fly fishing. This course welcomes both beginners and avid fly-fishers, where they will cast away into things from fishing techniques

Maralyn Lloyd and John Bowers are keeping busy by talking to students about courses for the upcoming school year.

to fly and knot tying, and also participating in field trips to local rivers. There are also many notable courses offered

at Carihi that are not necessarily new. There is the emergency medical responder course, hockey academy

program, specialty sports courses, chef and cafeteria programs, forestry program, and University 1 at the North Island

College. “[The] electives we run is always determined by the interests with the kids,” said Bowers.

Bowers also said that this is generally an exciting time for students, where the majority comes from the upcoming Grade 9s. The Grade 12s are excited too, but in a different way. Particularly for prom and graduation, which can also evoke some sadness. Bowers also commented on how far education has come, since he was a student himself. “Learning is really cool these days,” said Bowers. “[There are] way more opportunities for kids to explore potential careers and futures. A Grade 8 parent information night was held on Feb. 20. A parent meeting for current grades 9 to 11 will be held on Feb. 27. Students are encouraged to discuss their courses with guardians in order to make the best decisions for them.

Australian teacher spends a year at Carihi CLINTON MACADAM CARIHI MIRROR

An Australian teacher, Brad Annison, recently came to Campbell River with his family to teach at Carihi for a year. Annison viewed teaching internationally as a unique way to experience another culture. He did a year-long exchange with Carihi

teacher Jason Kerluck, who travelled to Australia. At Carihi, he took on the role of a math and science teacher. Annison greatly enjoyed the students and culture of Carihi. He said that, in his experience, Carihi students are kind, respectful, and that they care greatly about the school.

The event that demonstrated this most, he thought, was the annual Christmas turkey dinner. Annison was impressed by the enthusiasm of the students, and teachers, with regards to organizing and running the event. Comparing the environment to his school back in Australia, he noted that students have

Watch for the Carihi Mirror bi-weekly feature.

Clinton Macadam

I am new to the Carihi Mirror team this year as a Grade 11 student. In the past, I started to explore my passion for journalism through participation in some writing contests. In addition, following social, political, and economic issues has always been of interest to me. Raised in Campbell River, I enjoy spending time in the local outdoors and being an active member of the community. This combination of interests has led me to pursue this wonderful opportunity in journalism. I look forward to meeting new people, hearing new perspectives, and other opportunities that this journey will bring. I am excited to fulfill this fantastic opportunity of writing for the Carihi Mirror!

much more freedom at Carihi.

Annison also liked many of his colleagues at Carihi. In addition, he joked that “the students here are no different than the students in Australia, in terms of how much homework they do”. Annison liked the community of Campbell River, specifically, the relaxed pace and the natural environment.

7x3 CArihi Writers

I have been writing for many years now. My most memorable writing adventure was back in Grade 8 when two friends of mine and myself started the first ever newspaper at Phoenix. We produced nine editions overall with each edition getting more readers than the last. During that time, I conducted several interviews as well as wrote many articles. Writing for that newspaper really helped bring out my inner journalist. Now, I am thrilled to be part of the Carihi Mirror and I will take full advantage of this wonderful experience to help me grow as a young journalist.

He particularly enjoyed “the scenery, the views, walking in the forest, the wildlife, the Campbell River, and Elk Falls”. Annison went further to add that he was very disappointed that he never caught a salmon. He continued with the theme of the natural environment, stating that he particularly enjoyed the snow and the

mountains. “We don’t get snow in Australia, and I really like it”, Annison said. Annisonsaid he and his family had a great time. “We’re going to miss it when we go, especially the new culture and the outdoor activities.” Annison said he would strongly consider returning to Canada at some point in the future.

Jasmine MacGregor

My adventures in journalism began last year when I first started writing for the Carihi Mirror as a Grade 11 student. The moment I saw my first article in print, I knew I was hooked.  As I begin my Grade 12 year, I marvel at all the opportunities “real life” will bring, the places I’ll see, the people I’ll encounter and all the stories they will tell.  I find joy in the performing arts, the French language, the great outdoors and of course, putting pen to paper or as they should say in the 21st century, putting keys to computer screen.  I look forward to another fantastic year writing for the Carihi Mirror!

Well priced for midToday, however, many week sipping!

Opinion

Another exceptionally affordable red from South-East Australia, Crocodile Creek Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon (886119) $16.50 is seriously sippable. All blackcurrant fruit up front, it slides seamlessly into earthy, peppery blackberry with a twist of sage in the finish. Wrattonbully lies between Padthaway and Coonawarra in the terra rossa-rich rolling hill country of South Australia’s Naracoorte Ranges. Wrattonbully is a temperate region that is especially well-suited to the production of high-quality red wines. Gently hilly slopes facilitate cold air flow and lower relative humidity, minimising the risk of frost and disease. Parker Favourite Son Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot (42812) $18.99 shows the trademark bright fruit and deep flavours associated with

the Wrattonbully region - brooding black-purple colour with aromas of blackcurrant, cedar, cappuccino and even violets. As the wine takes on air in the glass, the fruit peels back and the wine gets remarkably Bordeaux-like. The Barossa Valley is a renowned wine-producing region northeast of Adelaide, in South Australia. The area encompasses towns such as Tanunda, Angaston and Nuriootpa, and an array of high-profile wineries offering tours and cellar-door tastings. Shiraz grapes are the local speciality. From the Barossa Valley, Hesketh’s ‘The Protagonist’ Shiraz (504076) $20.79 oozes ripe berries and dusky dried plums with a very generous and old-fashioned over-the-top vat full of juicy blackberry, eucalyptus and mint aromas and flavours.

When wine lovers think of Barossa, it is this valley and the wine growing region that comes first to mind. Very few know of the Battle of Barrosa – fought in 1811 outside of the Spanish port of Cadiz during the Peninsular War between France and the combined forces of Spain and their English allies. A vinous rematch of the famous 1811 battle at Barrosa Ridge where Spain and France collided. Chaffey Bros. La Résistance! takes up the fight for the traditional French varieties of the Barossa and pitches gnarly old vine Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre into defence against the invading foreign marauders. During the historic battle a single British division defeated two French divisions and captured a regimental eagle – but ultimately failed to break the siege of Cádiz. At Chaffey Bros. in the Eden Valley, winemaking brothersin-law Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela make small

batches from grapes from the Barossa and Eden Valleys in South Australia. Whether they are named whimsically or historically, these are fighting wines! A blend of 55 per cent Grenache, 33% Syrah, and 12 per cent Mourvèdre, Chaffey Bros. ‘Battle for Barossa’ - La Résistance! - GSM (755645) $33.99 offers up a medley of black cherry and strawberry aromas and flavours. Underpinning the fruit, subtle oak and caramel notes round out the finish. The town of Margaret River lies in Western Australia’s South West region, 9 kilometres

inland from the Indian Ocean. Named for the town, the Margaret River wine growing region has a Mediterranean-style climate, without extreme summer and winter temperatures, provides ideal conditions for growing wine gapes - like France’s Bordeaux in a dry year. Spiced up with a splash of Malbec, Devil’s Lair Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon (190132) $51.40 is all red and black berry fruit with and earthy sprinkle of leafy forest floor aromas along with vanilla, hazelnut and dried cherry. In the mouth it’s green herbs and ripe black cherry. Subdued tannins and a lengthy finish. Regardless of your favourite price point or historical perspective, take time to rediscover the voluptuous red wines Australia continues to offer us!

ome Campbell River high school students got a little bit closer to some of life’s smallest elements Monday. Let’s Talk Science volunteers from Genome BC’s Geneskool program were touring Vancouver Island and stopped by both Campbell River Christian School and Timberline Secondary. “I love that they come with hands-on activities for the kids,” says Timberline biology teacher Natasha Ubriaco, who has invited the Geneskool volunteers to her classroom every year since she first experienced their presentations “almost a dozen years ago now when I was at Phoenix.” Ubriaco says her favourite aspect of the visits is the fact that everyone – teachers, students and the volunteer presenters – gets something out of it. “I’m always looking for more of those types of hands-on experiences to bring to the classroom, so when

the curriculum at the moment, so this is really an opportunity to add that extra value for students in B.C. Molecular biology is such a big part of everything that goes on around us, so if this can inspire a few more kids to get involved in science and get them excited about these essential aspects of life, the better off we’ll be as a society in the future.” The workshops are also a chance for students to get a sense of the “why?” of studying science. “There are a ton of occupations that come from this kind of study and research,” Boon says, adding, “the volunteers who go out are usually either masters or PhD candidates in it, so they’re great representatives because they’re living it and doing it and the kids get to talk to them and ask, ‘what do you do?’

Jennifer Boon, communications manager for Genome BC, says the demonstrations are part of what the organization is trying to achieve: to make science more accessible for people. “We have a provincial mandate to go out and about into communities, so we do public talks, school workshops, we send suitcases full of stuff all over the province,” Boon says. “Genetics isn’t really fully represented in

Words on the Water continues to draw loyal following

W

ords on the Water Writers’ Festival marks its 16th anniversary this year, once again bringing eight of Canada’s top writers to Campbell River for readings and great conversations in front of an audience of local readers, many of whom return year after year. Carol Anderson of Campbell River, for example, has attended almost every festival since it began in 2001. “It’s not something to miss. It’s always, always wonderful,” she says. “Listening to writers talk to each other – it’s like being in on this beautiful conversation.” Marlene Baker has also only missed attending the festival a few times since it began and says it’s one of the highlights of her year, mainly because it’s a chance to connect with the authors on a more personal level than through their work. “Certain writers grab you,” she says, pointing to past festival authors Ivan Coyote and Shane Koyczan as standouts. She recognized Koyczan from first seeing him perform at the opening ceremony for the 2010 Olympics and appreciated the chance to see him perform some other work, saying,

“how fortunate Campbell River is to have these writers come here.” The line-up for this year’s festival is again filled with award-winning authors, including Wayne Johnston, whose Giller Prize-nominated novels include The Colony of Unrequited Dreams and, more recently, The Son of a Certain Woman. He is joined by Briony Penn, naturalist, writer and activist whose biography The Real Thing won the 2016 Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize, spoken word artist Jillian Christmas, a Vancouverbased poetry slam champion who is also co-director of Versus Festival of Words and John Donlan, a former Barbara Moon Editorial Fellow at Massey College who has authored four books of poetry and is the current Haig-Brown Writer in Residence. Then there’s Charles Demers, an author and stand-up comedian who is a regular on CBC radio’s The Debaters and whose most recent book is a collaboration with George Bowering about fatherhood and Molly Peacock, poet, biographer and essayist whose biography The Paper Garden was selected as a book of the year by The Economist magazine.

Not E Another Piano Recital

very summer Campbell River music students attend summer music programs and camps. Every spring, Campbell River Friends of Music hold a variety concert to raise funds to help them go there. This year’s Not Another Piano Recital will be held on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 26, at the Campbell River United Church. In keeping with the tradition of having something for everyone, including some piano music, (despite the concert’s name), orga-

Author and stand-up comedian Charles Demers, a regular on CBC radio’s The Debaters, will be one of eight presenters at this year’s Words on the Water Writer’s Festival. Demers will also be presenting at both Campbell River high schools while he’s in town.

The festival is a communitysupported event put on by a committee of volunteers and funded through ticket sales, grants from all levels of government and support from corporate and community sponsors. The festival also partners with

nizer Amy Lelliott has lined up some of the amazing musical talent available in the Campbell River area. Trumpeter Jay Havelaar, himself a recipient of several Friends of Music summer bursaries as a child, has put together a jazz combo of himself and three well-known area musicians: Mike Eddy on keyboard, Don McKay on bass and Tom Tinsley, drums. Two rising vocal stars, Charis Tazumi and Kate Le will be be singing some contemporary music. Various groups from the Raincoast

School District 72 annually to invite one of the writers to present to the local high schools as part of its commitment to fostering an appreciation of literature. This year, Charles Demers will be presenting to students at Carihi and Timberline secondary schools on

Friday, March 10. Words on the Water runs March 10 and 11. Tickets are available at Coho Books, the Campbell River Art Gallery or online at www. wordsonthewater.ca. An early bird discount on weekend passes is available until the end of February.

Performing Arts will don their costumes and captivate the audience with their musical theatre numbers. A duo of Amy Stevenson on viola and Janice Scriba on piano will explore some classical repertoire for this unusual combination. Towa Stewart, an up-and-coming young pianist from Courtenay, will dazzle with a jazzy arrangement of Michael Jackson’s Bad/Smooth Criminal. For over twenty years, the Friends of Music have helped students attend a wide variety of summer programs,

giving them the opportunity to meet other young musicians, and often to explore outside their area of concentration. For example, a student who practiced piano diligently from September to June, might have the chance to play the clarinet in an orchestra, or the saxophone in a jazz combo, for a few weeks in the summer. Since the program started in the 1990s more than 75 students have taken advantage of this financial aid. Sunday’s concert starts at 2:30 and admission is by donation.

ALISTAIR TAYLOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Taking care of your own people and giving back to your community are two strong drivers of the way Campbell River accounting firm Chan Nowasad Boates (CNB) conducts its business. It’s the way the original partners conducted themselves when they started operating in Campbell River in 1983 and it’s the way the CNB team continues to operate. “We need to train our people and grow our people,” John Chan said. “We had to develop our own talent. And so that’s one part of it; we need to grow our own people. “The other part is giving back to society.” Chan falls back on his own personal journey for the inspiration for their philosophy. As a young man he moved to Canada and got firsthand experience with how tough it can be to get started in a new country on your own. His journey eventually brought him to Campbell River in 1976 as a young chartered accountant (CA) and then he and his original partner Dave Nowasad (now retired) were articling students for another firm in Campbell River and decided they wanted to venture out on their own. “We were both young CAs then,” Chan said. Early on they acted on their belief in mentoring your own talent. “I just want the opportunity for all the young people,” Chan said. Chan and Nowasad realized early on that they’re not like a large accounting firm in the Lower Mainland which can draw on a constant

“That’s something we’re proud of,” Lamb said. In addition to the original partners’ philosophy, Lamb adds the company makes a commitment to its clients and brings it back to a personal level. “You have to provide service to people as you expect it to be provided to you,” Lamb said. As the company continues into the future, the original partners’ philosophy is strongly entrenched in the current generation. “The future is depending on the young guys,” Chan said.

A tradition of community involvement and personal growth is a big component of what Chan Nowasad Boates partners (clockwise from back, left) Erica Chan-Lafrance, Derek Lamb, Karen Stewart, Shelley Boates and John Chan believe in and was begun by original partners Chan and Dave Nowasad.

supply of local accounting students being produced by universities like UBC and SFU. North Island College has developed a strong program that has taken on that role on the North Island over the last five years or so, he said. But, in the past, in order to build a strong team, they focused on developing staff internally. Examples of that exist in the firm’s current partners. Shelley Boates and Karen Stewart

started out with the company as administrative staff and were encouraged to get their Chartered Accountant designation. CNB’s partners consist of Chan, Boates, Stewart and Erica Chan-Lafrance and Derek Lamb. Chan encouraged Boates and Stewart and other former staff to pursue their professional development. “To John’s credit, (he) mentored them, pushed them to get their CA designations,” partner

They do it all As an accounting firm, they do it all: n Personal & Corporate Tax Services n Notice to Reader Financial Statements n Estate Planning & Year of Death Tax Returns n U.S. Tax Services & Consulting n Audit & Other Assurance n Family Trust Planning & Trust Tax Returns n GST & PST Advisory Services n Business Advisory, Consultation and Valuation Services n Bookkeeping & Payroll Services

Derek Lamb said. “John, for me was the driving force. He was always supportive and always encouraging and never so much a dictator or anything like that. You just always felt supported,” Stewart said. “For me, they gave me lots of opportunities. Yeah, I started out as a receptionist.” But she was always encouraged to take on more and more responsibility. “I just kind of grew,” she said. And, of course, that second wave of partners continued the original partners’ philosophy. Chan-Lafrance credited Boates, in particular, for furthering the idea that it’s important for a company to give back to its community. “Whenever we’re looking to add somebody to our team one of the things we look at is, one, are you willing to learn, are you willing to

grow – which is John’s thing – and two, do you share the same passion that we have that, if you want to succeed in the community, you need to make the community better?” Chan-Lafrance said. “You can do anything but if you don’t make the community that you live in, that you work in, better how do you grow your business in the community?” And CNB is known for giving back to the community. Since opening their doors in 1983, the company has consistently given back to the community in several ways including monetary donations, holding free tax return preparation clinics and providing their expertise and time to many non-profit organizations. CNB team members are actively involved in 25 different board director positions in the community and have donated over $230,000

2x6 TIPS FROM TAP What is the difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant? Basically a bookkeeper helps you manage the businesses day to day financial needs, including debtors, creditors, assets and liabilities. A good bookkeeper will provide you with the financial reports you need to manage your business finances on a day to day basis while keeping the records accurate and up to date. An accountant is interested in the broader picture, will often offer strategic advice, tax advice and planning, and prepares the businesses annual tax return. A trained and qualified bookkeeper will often save the business money at tax time. The accountant can focus on the big picture if the financial information they receive is done correctly. With these 2 professionals on the team, a business owner can concentrate on what he does best knowing that the financial reporting for the business has been taken care of.

Trevena: ‘There’s a lot missing from the budget’ JOCELYN DOLL CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The provincial government released the 2017 budget on Tuesday saying that it “delivers the dividends of a strong and diversified economy and prudent fiscal management by cutting costs for middle-class B.C. families.” However, NDP MP Claire Trevena said she doesn’t think the average family is going to see any changes. “It is not going to help people who are struggling day to day who are looking at the cost of hous-

ing,” she said. “I hear from people many times who make that choice of do I put food on the table or do I pay my hydro bill? “This is a budget that is designed to put a gloss on the last 16 years of Liberal government, make it seem like they may be doing something but it is business as usual, favouring their friends and not looking after the real needs of this province.” The 2017 Budget promises a 50 per cent cut to MSP premiums on Jan. 1, 2018 and claims it will be the first step to eliminating the premiums all

together. Trevena wasn’t impressed with this promise. “They put up MSP in January, they turn around in February and say next January we are going to half it but at the moment you are going to pay your increased premiums.” The budget also promises an increase of $740 million to fund K-12 education over the next three years, which includes $228 million to fund enrolment growth, rural education enhancement, student transportation, salaries and funds for the Learning Improvement Fund.

Trevena, though not critical of an investment in education, pointed out that the supreme court forced the government’s hand to invest in education in a decision back in November. The budget includes a three-year increase of $4.2 billion to the Ministry of Health which includes funding to support the government’s $100-million, three year enhancement in services addressing mental health and substance use issues, particularly in youth. The budget also provides additional funding to support those families,

Blaney returns from NATO annual meeting JOCELYN DOLL CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Last weekend MP Rachel Blaney represented Canada at the annual NATO parliamentary assembly in Brussels, Belgium. “ The 29 memb er countries of NATO sat together and focused on critical issues of common concern,” she said, adding that much of the conversation revolved around stepping up efforts to overcome extremism of every kind. “Another thing that was really interesting was that we talked a lot about women in the military,” she said. The assembly also discussed how they can work together to make sure infrastructure such as ships and planes is operable so that everyone can contribute efficiently. Coming up this week in parliament, the representatives will be debating Bill C-23. The bill enacts an agreement made between Canada and the U.S.A in 2015 to provide for the pre-clearance in each country of travellers

and goods bound for the other country. There have been a lot of concerns about American customs agents obtaining more power on Canadian soil, Blaney said, including the ability to carry firearms, perform strips searches and detain and interrogate travellers. “While we are favourable to measures that will allow for speedy US border crossings we cannot allow this at the expense of human rights, the privacy rights of Canadians and Canadian sovereignty,” Blaney said. Blaney added that she objects to the fact that minister Ralph Goodale did not raise the issue during his first visit with the Trump administration. “The current government is going ahead with the agreement that was signed with the Obama administration as it if is business as usual but we know with this new administration that that is not the case,” she said. For more from Blaney about her trip to Brussels and thoughts on border crossings, head online to campbellrivermirror. com

individuals and children most in need including $287 million to the Ministry of Children and Family Development, $120 million of which is to begin addressing the recommendations from the report of indigenous child welfare, as well as $199 million to fund an increase in income assistance rates for persons with disabilities and $135 million for community living services. Trevena feels that missing from these supports is an increase to income assistance, which hasn’t changed in 11 years, she said. And there is no

mention of funding for residential care or home care. “There is no mention about seniors, and seniors care is an issue right across the province, there is no question,” she said. To address the housing availability and affordability issues, the government committed $920 million to “support the creation of over 5,300 affordable housing units.” The BC HOME partnership program, launched last month, will provide more than $700 million in repayable down payment assistance

over the next three years and the threshold for the first-time homebuyer’s program will be increased to $500,000. But Trevena doesn’t think that is enough to address the crisis in the lower mainland or support families looking to buy or rent at a fair price on the North Island. “There is nothing that is really going to help people with that,” she said, adding she feels the budget overall shows that “the government is clearly hoping that the people will forget the last 16 years and just accept that everything is rosy.”

A Look Back

THE HISTORY OF THE CAMPBELL RIVER AREA

Finding the good life – thoughts from Roderick Haig-Brown ERIKA ANDERSON MUSEUM AT CAMPBELL RIVER

R

oderick Haig-Brown lived with his wife Ann and their four children in a modest farmhouse on the banks of the Campbell River. Roderick was a writer and magistrate, as well as a respected advocate for the environment and social justice.  His writings indicate that he was very satisfied with the life he was living. “I am, after all, about as happily and comfortably situated as any man could ask to be,” he expressed just prior to being deployed to serve in World War II.  They lived simply, gardening for both food and pleasure, reading, working and being very involved in the community.  This thoughtful man’s philosophies about life and the world around him often ring even more true today than they did in his time, and there are lessons to be learned from his writing about how to be satisfied in life. In 1970 he wrote, “If there is a common denominator in this search for a life of meaning and quality, it is this: a desire to work with people and for people, either directly or in such a way that the effort is plainly dedicated to the ideal.  It is a people-oriented rather than profit-oriented philosophy and, by extension, is concerned with all living things rather than inanimate objects.”  Beyond Campbell River, Roderick was known for his environmental activism and

an organization dedicated to helping people, is possibly the most significant way that the local community has chosen to honour this couple.

7x3 Museum Ad

A conservationist at heart, Roderick Haig-Brown had concerns about how development, especially with boom and bust economies, impacted the environment. He also looked at the impact on individuals’ quality of life living with the economic uncertainties and the environmental degradation of unrestrained development.  “It is difficult to know how much or how little human happiness grows out of such a boom, but the total seems less than before.  There are more worried and anxious and uncertain people than there were before,” he notes describing a boom and bust economy in the community of Elkhorn.  “Even the most ambitious of them speak regretfully of simplicities they loved in the earlier Elkhorn, which now seems lost in the surge of progress they called for.”  In his book Measure of the Year, Roderick considers the relationship between that which we consider progress, to that which people most desire – happiness, and suggests that the true value to people be considered when making decisions about development.  “The sanctity of ‘progress’ with its tricky little catch phrase, ‘We can’t stand in the way of progress,’ seems suddenly false and treacherous.  It is a good time to ask, ‘Why can’t we?’ to a thing called ‘development’ in terms of values that already exist, in its relationship to the economy of the whole nation and the whole continent; above all, in its relationship to human happiness.”

Elvi Annikki

Kattilakoski

October 4, 1933 – December 23, 2016 It is with sad hearts that we said goodbye to our Aiti, mom, mummu, grandma K, Elvi Annikki Kattilakoski (nee Lyly). Aiti was born in Finland and had 6 siblings. She immigrated to Canada in 1970 with her family and put down roots on Vancouver Island, where she lived in Campbell River, Cedar and Nanaimo. Aiti loved gardening and worked very hard with Bert, her second husband, on “Bert’s Berry Farm” in Cedar. During the summer, we could always find her in the berry bushes picking baskets of raspberries or blue - berries for sale the next day, while Bert was getting fire wood for sale or chatting with customers. Aiti had many friends in the Finnish Community and loved to look after the “Finnish Ladies” as she sometimes called her friends when she visited them or picked them up when they needed a ride. She was a great cook and her rice pudding with berry sauce was the favourite of everyone in the family. Aiti was predeceased by two husbands (Auno and Bert) and 2 sisters (Eini and Raija) . Elvi was survived by her children Kaija (Ken); Juha (Brenda); Pekka (Elaine); Paivi (Wayne); Kai (Amy); grandchildren Sara, Matt, Sam, Justine and Robert; great-grandchildren Abby, Tyrus and Thomas; Aiti will be greatly missed by all of her family and friends. A small private gathering of family and closest friends was held celebrating her memory.

Beverley Anne Mathews On the morning of February 4th, Beverley Anne Mathews (nee Horrex) 86, peacefully passed away at her home with her children Sheril, Jeannie, and Richard Mathews by her side. Bev was preceded by her husband of 60 years Bill (Oct. 2009). Bev is survived by Richard's wife Christine, Sheril's children Samantha and Brian (Amy), greatgranddaughter Nyla and Ed Brenton, her traveling and crib companion and most importantly her loving close friend. Bev grew up in Enderby B.C. , daughter of Nora and Charles Horrex. She attended and completed Normal School in Victoria (1947-48), and took her first teaching job at Von Donop on Cortez Island. After her children were well into their school years, Bev returned to teach at Manson's Landing (Cortez Island Elem. Junior Sec.). Being an avid learner, she attended summer school and distance learning to obtain her Bachelor of Education from the University of Victoria. After retirement, Bev's next job was dishwasher at the Taka Mika. She described this job as a joy! No papers to mark or bells constantly ringing! However, she could not stop teaching and went to Darwin, Australia as an exchange teacher and then ESL teacher in Amori, Japan. When Bev and Bill left Whaletown and moved to Campbell River, Bev became an active volunteer in both ESL and Adult Literacy. "Mrs. Mathews" enriched the lives of countless students of all ages, and many describe her as their favourite teacher. Bev was a wonderful mother and a good friend to many. She will always be missed. The family wishes to thank the Palliative nurses, Dr. Proctor and Father Jan Grotkowski for their endless support and help. A celebration of her life will be announced and held in April.

My Mom, My Friend ~ February 25, 2016 The moment that you left me, My heart was split in two, One side was filled with memories, The other side died with you. I often lay awake at night When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon my cheek. Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday, But missing you is a heartache That never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart And there you will remain, You see life has gone on without you, But will never be the same. Love Debbie, Gary, Ashley, Tyler & Jesse

150th anniversary of Confederation. The fund will be responsive to local priorities and will be accessible to all Canadians, including Indigenous peoples, youth, groups that reflect our cultural diversity, and official language minority groups. To apply for the New Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, go to crfoundation.ca and look under “Grants” at the top of the page. Applications are due by Friday, March 17. “Canada’s 150th is an historic moment with the power to strengthen our communities and our connection to one another. Through the leadership of participating community foundations, the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th will spark thousands of initiatives and activities that bring out the best that Canada has to offer,” says Ian Bird, president of Community Foundations of Canada. “The Fund will encourage all Canadians to contribute to their communities in a way that fosters a greater sense of belonging, inclusion, and Reconciliation as we look to 2017 as a catalyst for community development in the years ahead.”

“The 150th anniversary of Confederation is an opportunity for a whole generation of Canadians to come together and celebrate our accomplishments. This important step will allow us to strengthen the bonds between Canadians from all regions of the country and to build, together, a vision for our future,” says Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage. “The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th will let us create community projects that will leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.” For more information visit crfoundation.ca or communityfoundations. ca/CFC150. Since it was founded in 1990, the Campbell River Community Foundation has reached $2 million in permanent endowment funds and has given out nearly $350,000 in grants to many local non-profit organizations. The Community Fund for Canada’s 150th is a collaborative effort, seeded by the Government of Canada and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast. The fund is matched and delivered locally by Canada’s 191 community foundations.
